I am a third year Ph.D. student on the archaeology track in Stanford University's Department of Anthropology. My work looks at how emergent technologies and governance practices enable new forms of national and non-national political communities. I am also interested in heritage management and archaeology in Post-Soviet Europe. I am jointly pursuing a J.D. at Stanford Law School and in 2010 I earned a B.A. and M.S. in anthropology from the University of Pennsylvania.
